Anything more on this case? I'm assuming it was settled because that article was from 2017.
NES, we, did a thread on this. He got a two year suspension but I don't remember after that.

BROOKFIELD - State police confirmed Tuesday night that a trooper from the Brookfield barracks who took video recordings of traffic stops for two years without department authorization has been suspended.
David Procopio, state police spokesman, did not elaborate in an email Tuesday night on the duration of the suspension that Trooper Nicholas Holden will face. The discipline comes after the initiation of three separate internal affairs probes that concluded the 42-year-old trooper was overly aggressive and taped without state police authorization. The administrative action decision was finalized Friday.
“An internal investigation by the Massachusetts State Police has sustained multiple charges against Trooper Nicholas Holden for violations of departmental policies and rules,” Mr. Procopio said in the statement. “The department has taken administrative action against Trooper Holden commensurate with the sustained offenses. As for his departmental duty status, he is suspended.”
Another hero breaking the face of a woman because he can. I love how after he does it he tells the other cop "I'm good, I'm good", while shes face down in a pool of blood. Big man.
Then there's tbe Sheriff's deputy who calls a woman he previously arrested....
On the one hand, I'm like "oh no an injustice is being done", but on the other hand I'm like "this is hilarious".
At least he made sure to call her "ma'am." JFC.
You have a 1A right to flip the bird at a cop but you wouldn’t want to exercise your right in MA because you could lose your inalienable right to keep an bear arms.
Somebody is getting a payday backed by several high level court cases addressing exactly what happened here.
Incidents like these would actually be effective at lowering police abuse IF the punishment were to come from them personally when the $ was awarded by the court. Since the taxpayer gets stuck with the bill those cops will all remain on duty doing the same shit.
I admit, I laughed because he thought all cops cared about the law and constitution.
The unauthorised recordings didn't bother me much until the article pointed out not producing then in court is withholding evidence.
This guy has the kind of psych and character problems that should disqualify him from any position where he has power over people.
Lawsuit: Gilbert Woman Suffered Brain Injury During Violent Arrest
The sound of her face hitting the deck is sickening.
But don’t worry, the hero was okay. And that’s what’s important.
That particular encounter comes down to sheer impatience/petulance on the officer. He could have asked her to remain seated and tried to verify if that truck was her ex ex-husband's and attempted to find him.
Had the officer taken a more empathetic approach to his questioning and slowed it down to let her keep up (as she's clearly hammered and slow at responding) he likely could have gotten the entire situation verbally. Instead hes peppering her with verbal input and she's struggling to stay current in the conversation, creating confusion.
The other cops are just standing around like it was no big deal. Fire them all, period end.
An that's just the violence on women ON DUTY.
Imagine the domestic violence LEO wives put up with.
Million dollars bail and 3 months in jail for cotton candy. Corrupt from top to bottom.
Well, that was "nice of them" (the "prosecutors") to drop the charges tho........... right ?
$1M bail?!? Wow.
News didn't say why she was pulled over, but the poor gal must have been dumb enough to not say "Sorry officer, but I don't consent to any searches." It's hard to tell, but to me she has that look of someone who might get arrested for Contempt of Cop.
